Visit Our Website


With the passing of owner Jeff Reid’s Mother Jerrie, Jeff decided to build a business in his Mothers honor. Jerrie never passed a hot dog stand without stopping in for one. You always knew she stopped because you could see some remains on her shirt. Man would we laugh when we would ask her if she ate and she would tell us no.

Jeff has opened several well-known businesses in Joliet and now Jerrie’s Dogs and Fries. Opened November 14, 2016 Jerrie’s serves All Beef Vienna Hot Dogs. With steamed Rosens Buns these hot dogs just melt in your mouth.

No need to drive to the City of Chicago when you have the City of Chicago right here in Joliet. Located at 1003 Essington Rd. right next to Double “J” Sports Bar.

Don’t feel like a hot dog try a Fried Bologna Sandwich or one of our great Tamales.

We have a keep it simple type of menu. We do not let our fries, rings or tots sit. We make them to order. Fontanini Beef, Pork tenderloin and the best chicken sandwiches in Joliet wraps up our menu. Different appetizers to choose from.

We use the App UberEats for our Deliveries. And while you are here sign up for our Five Stars Rewards program. Stop in and give us a try. We feel as though we carry the best products available to us for our customers.

We are always trying something to bring you BACK!
